After conquering South America with his fingers of fury, Brazilian Kiko Loureiro and his band Angra's first release went gold in Japan. Now as his musical reputation spreads worldwide with Megadeth, Ibanez introduces the instrument on which Kiko and the guitar builder collaborated. The KIKO100 is Kiko's own take on Ibanez S Series with a thicker Alder body for tighter low end. Dressed in a transparent ruby red finish with Flamed Maple top, the KIKO100 makes a visual statement as passionate as the player for whom it was designed. The scalloped fingerboard on the 19th-24th frets is KIKO's own touch, for easier high note bending and tapping. The horn cut is extra deep, as well as beveled, allowing for multidirectional access. With the classic Edge bridge, the most extreme sonic acrobatics can be fearlessly performed with confidence that the guitar will effortlessly return to perfect tuning. DiMarzio Kiko Original pickups, along with 5-way switch and coil-tapping on/ off function on volume pot, expanding the tonal variations for wider music genres.
